“Perfectly Lovely Little House”
Reviewed July 24, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

When trying to find somewhere for the whole family to stay in York for my son's Graduation, I stumbled across this rental by accident on the Tripadvisor site. What a happy accident that was!
The house itself is beautifully decorated and furnished, with a comfortable, homely atmosphere juxtaposed with gorgeous on-trend style.
Everything has been thought of and provided, with state-of the-art technology in the form of the TV, coffee machine etc, excellent kitchen equipment, lovely bathroom toiletries and fluffy towels, deliciously comfy beds etc etc, You name it, No 59 has it!
It goes without saying that everywhere was as clean as a whistle.
The owners are clearly people with excellent taste and a huge amount of thought has gone into creating a holiday home that exceeds all expectations.
The customer service provided is second to none. We were met by Jerry, the owner, on our arrival and after unloading were shown where to park the car in the free nearby parking space, about three minutes walk from the house.
The house is so central that I only needed to use the car once, to drop my son at the uni, about ten minutes drive away ( £6 in a taxi). We walked into the city centre, along the river, around the Minster, out for dinner, to go shopping... The whole of York is on the doorstep.
There is a teeny bit of traffic sound at night and you need to pull the blackout blinds under the bedroom curtains, but this is to be expected in the centre of a vibrant city. There is a handsome old church opposite the house though and no pubs or restaurants in the street, so no "kicking out time" noise.
There was a pint of milk and a bottle of Prosecco in the fridge, lots of tea and coffee and Betty's Tearoom biscuits provided. After unpacking we sat in the sunshine in the very private courtyard garden and congratulated ourselves on our find.
The cost of renting this lovely house to accommodate a family of four, the children being young adults, was so much better value than a equivalent hotel would have been, and much nicer, too.
My 19 year old daughter wants to live at No. 59 St Denys Road, and I think perhaps I do, too!

“Gorgeous cottage, great location”
Reviewed July 21, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Really lovely little cottage, spotlessly clean, nicely decorated, had everything we needed in a home-from-home way, plus thoughtful extras like bathroom toiletries, teas & coffees, milk and Prosecco in the fridge...
Very pleased with ourselves for selecting it as an alternative to a hotel, much more cost-effective for four of us, and we had somewhere to sit and relax together, make our own breakfast, cool our Prosecco in the fridge, sit outside when the sun was shining etc.
Even more chuffed when we realised the road with all the bars and restaurants (Fossgate), including the Blue Bicycle and Ambiente Tapas which had been widely recommended to us, was literally at the end of St Denys Street.
Easy to walk to anywhere, shops (essentials and mooching varieties) less than 150 yards away, yet a quiet little oasis.
Lovely, lovely, lovely. Would stay here again a million times.

“Lovely house, great location”
Reviewed July 20, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

The house is charming, very comfortable and furnished with style and quality. Very well appointed kitchen, excellent wifi signal. The whole house was flawlessly clean. Although the road is busy during the day, it's quiet at night. A stone's throw from any number of nice restaurants, and an easy walk to many of York's sightseeing attractions. The owners couldn't have been nicer: friendly, helpful and responsive and provided a generous welcome pack! I thoroughly enjoyed my stay.

“Home from Home”
Reviewed May 31, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

My husband and myself and two friends have just returned from a weekend stay at this lovely house in the centre of York. You could not have asked for a better position, it was also very clean and really well equipped, we wanted for nothing! The owners kindly left a bottle of Prosecco in the fridge along with milk and biscuits as a welcome gift. It was a real home from home and would certainly return again. I would have no fear in recommending this rental to anyone.

Everything was provided for our comfort and made our stay most enjoyable. With four adults sharing there was plenty of space with two double bedrooms furnished tastefully and very comfortable. Beautiful bathroom with instant continual hot water whenever it was wanted. This is an exceptional letting and I'm so glad we chose to stay here instead of in a hotel.

“Superb house in a superb location”
Reviewed May 28, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

A well presented and spotlessly clean house in a superb location. The owners were very helpful recommending additional parking nearby and were very welcoming. The property is ideally situated only a 5min walk into town and a bus stop conveniently located outside. There is a Tesco express round the corner and restaurants at the end of the street. Both beds were extremely comfortable and the patio at the back is a nice area to sit and read. I honestly feel the photos do not do this property justice. Highly recommend a stay in this lovely property. I would definately stay again.

“Amazing house, perfect location and exceptional attention to detail!”
Reviewed January 1, 2015 for a stay in January 2015

person found this review helpful

Stayed with another couple over new year, loved the house on its own, was easy to find, nice and spacious, one of the most well equipped holiday rentals have ever stayed in. The location was excellent, only a few minutes to walk to the shambles and found an exceptional curry house around the corner. Tesco express very close also. The best part of this house was the attention to detail in the things that were put in the house, have never stayed anywhere that has dishwasher tablets ready to go and tea and coffee as well as nespresso pods and complimentary oatcakes and prosecco. Thank you very much for our excellent stay

We stayed at st denys for a weekend in december and it was excellent. The house is central to everything. Theres restaurants, shops and bars just around the corner but being across the road from a church is very quiet. Will definately stay here next time were in york as you cant fault it. It worked out better value than staying in a hotel and had everything you need for a comfortable stay.
